We have a big share and some big news to share with our members this week!
First the share filled with lots of the tastes of summer…
Sweet Corn – We grew a yellow variety called Honey Select this year. It is delectable!
Watermelon – Sorbet Swirl is out first variety to ripen. Yellow with Orange swirls and very juicy!

Cherry Tomatoes – Orange and Red, we should have plenty this week for everyone
Beans – Purple, Green and Yellow filet type snap beans
Zucchini – I thought the patch was slowing down… I was wrong!
Cucumbers – monster year for these as well and we have two other types growing as well

Now the big news…
We are going to be partnering up with a dairy farm, https://fulperfarms.com/ and will be offering their artisanal cheeses, yogurt, and milk products for CSA members to purchase at our farm. And for this week on Tuesday they will be here from 1-2 and 3:30 till close to offer a tasting of their products. The farm crew and I tasted them on Friday and we were all very impressed with everything they had to offer. We will send a direct email to all our members with their order sheets and farm brochure.
Sweet Corn and Figgy the farm cat!
Have a great week,
